SAC Best Practices Webinar Series
Lisa Earle McLeod and Elizabeth McLeod: Money, Meaning, and the Millennials

It’s impossible to work in today’s environment and not encounter the generation of professionals known as Millennials (those born between 1982 and 2004). Depending who you talk to, they are either extremely engaged or not engaged at all, great employees or very difficult to work with, very demanding or great team members.

Confused? This webinar is for you.

Mother-daughter team Lisa Earle McLeod and Elizabeth McLeod will discuss how to harness the power of purpose to engage Millennial stakeholders. You’ll learn how to frame techniques to create urgency in a Millennial buyer and how to position yourself as cutting edge, even if you’re over 50.
